'Forza Motorsport 5' (XOne) Car Pass Expands With Additional Packs

by Rainier on May 24, 2014 @ 1:03 p.m. PDT

Forza Motorsport 5 is the latest edition of the racing franchise taking advantage of the infinite power of the cloud, setting a new bar for racing games.

Forza Motorsport 5 is a cinematic automotive journey starring the world’s greatest cars and tracks. Built from the ground up to take advantage of Xbox One and the vast power of the cloud, no game better delivers the wide-eyed thrill of racing.

This update will bring some momentous feature additions to Forza 5, including new race modes such as drag racing and multiplayer “Tag.” In addition, this update will bring some important adjustments to the Forza Motorsport 5 economy, including increasing the amount of credits earned for racing and lowering the prices of the best cars in the game. With the update currently in certification and awaiting final release, here’s a detailed look at the changes coming your way very soon.

Turn 10 Studios' Community Manage Brian Ekberg has revealed that the Forza 5 developer will be releasing an additional two car packs.

Recently, we’ve seen lots of questions from players around our ongoing plans for DLC in "Forza Motorsport 5." After the release of the Meguiar’s Car Pack  – which was originally scheduled to be the final pack included in the "Forza 5" Car Pass – some players were wondering if we were done altogether with DLC for the game. I’m pleased to put that notion to bed here and now; not only is more DLC on the way, but today we’ve also got some fantastic news for "Forza 5" Car Pass owners.

As a thank you to all of our loyal fans, we are extending the life of the "Forza Motorsport 5" Car Pass to include two more monthly car packs. If you are a Car Pass owner, that means you’ll be getting the next two monthly DLC car packs – the “June” pack, which is scheduled for release next Friday (more on that below), as well as our “July” car pack – at no additional charge. That’s 20 additional cars for you to collect, customize, and race, bringing the total to 90 DLC cars for "Forza 5" Car Pass owners!

Now, about that “June” pack. As you might know, we typically release our "Forza Motorsport 5" DLC car packs on the first Tuesday of each month. Under normal circumstances, that means that our next car pack would be released on Tuesday, June 2. This time, however, we are moving up our release schedule by a few days, which means the next Forza 5 DLC car pack will be available on Friday, May 30.

Like all "Forza 5" DLC cars, once you own a pack (or individual cars) you’ll be able to add them to your Forza 5 garage without using in-game credits or tokens. Look for more details the next monthly car pack for Forza 5 on Friday, May 30, and the full rundown on the July car pack in the coming weeks.
